LASSI (BUTTERMILK) – savoury version

This is an authentic Indian beverage which was developed in the Northern provinces of India. The original Lassi recipe calls for sugar as it is sweet. However, this is a more fun and exciting version as it is savoury. It has natural cooling agents such as mint, chilled curds, coriander, etc… It is easy and quick to put together as it can be whisked up in a matter of a few minutes. This drink is better than any Mocktail/cocktail/milkshake or other cold beverages.
Lassi aids in digestion , cooling and energizing the body . It is very good during hot summer days. Make it in large batches and serve in tall steel glasses as it originally is. This is a totally new version of Lassi as the condiments are nothing similar to the original one. So let me walk you through this easy recipe in quick and simple steps.
